My boyfriend and I enjoyed this trail. An immediate plus for us was that dogs were allowed along the trail. It was a surprising challenge due to the amount of loose sand (which is the majority of the trail - I see why the last section was labeled hard), but after a bit of rain I bet the trail would be easier to walk along. The trail has a variety of options to choose from - so you don't have to do the full loop, you can make the loop longer, you could walk along the beach instead of parts of the trail and there are several spots to access the beach. The landscape varied which was refreshing. We were able to walk through the dunes, on the beach and through some forested areas. After the trail it is just a short couple minutes to check out the light house. Heads up that this is a trail that people can horseback ride on, so you may come across horse poop here and there.
